Scott's Selection (distilled at Auchentoshan) 21 year old 1983 vintage, 52.4%
Price: $145 ● Issue: Winter 2005 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
Surprisingly thick and oily in texture for a Lowlander. There's plenty of marshmallow, vanilla cream, and ripe barley, with interspersed cut grass, lemon, and mustard seed. Drying oak spice notes on the finish. Not as polished or refined as the distillery bottling of the same age, but it still has many redeeming qualities.
